We believe in the power of creativity and self-expression, and our Short Film Bootcamp aimed to ignite the filmmaking passion within each and every young recruit. We brought together 19 super-talented youth both actors and crew, who joined us in Welland to create something truly magical.

Our enthusiastic recruits collaborated with more than 20 industry professionals who volunteered their time and expertise. Together, we dove into six days of filmmaking fun, packed with thrilling workshops, incredible guest speakers, and four action-packed days of filming for our epic short film, "Nerdman."

One of the highlights of the Bootcamp was the incredible sense of community and inclusivity we fostered. Our goal was to create a safe, supportive, and inclusive space where young filmmakers could freely express themselves and learn from each other. It was heartwarming to witness the bonds formed and the friendships forged among like-minded creative souls.

Thanks to the support of our amazing donors like KIT and FirstOntario Credit Union, we were able to offer full and partial scholarships to seven talented recruits! Making this incredible opportunity accessible to all is at the core of our mission, and we're grateful for the support that makes it possible.

After an intense week of creativity and collaboration, we proudly premiered our sensational short film, "Nerdman," at the Bank Art House in downtown Welland. The excitement was contagious as cast, crew, family, and friends gathered to celebrate the result of their hard work and creativity on the big screen!
